Ghana has a profound understanding and passion for the motor industry. He is renowned for his knowledge of the business and has become known as the "Motor Man" in industry circles. 

"As executive head of Motor, Ghana will dedicate his time to further entrenching WesBank in the market and to providing strategic alignment and continued support to dealers and OEMs," De Kock said.
